Welcome to the Competition Information, Stevens Competition Brief and Entry Form for the 2013 Stevens Competition for Architectural Glass Design, which is available now on the Glaziers’ Company website www.worshipfulglaziers.com and on the Worldskills website www.worldskillsuk.org/competitions from November.
The 2013 competition provides a unique opportunity for emerging glass artists to design for a challenging brief in an important location at The Furniture Makers’ Hall in the City of London. We consider a site visit to be essential this year in order to make an adequate assessment of the location, and have made it a requirement of the competition, see brief for visiting dates. Please complete on the entry form the date that you visited the Hall.
The Particulars and Conditions of Entry conform to a format used nationally by World Skills UK. World Skills UK is a part of the National Apprenticeship Service, and aims to encourage and recognise best practice in many practical occupations by holding national competitions. The competition is organised by volunteers from the Glaziers Company. The registration process has changed for this year, and competitors must register on the WorldskillsUK website between 11 February and 22 March 2013. When you register, you will be required to provide a Nom de Plume, to identify your entry, since judging by the professional panel is strictly anonymous.
The Company continues to welcome comments and feedback from colleges and competitors. We are always open to suggestions for improving the quality of the competition and the student seminar, although, as in many other fields, realistically we are limited by our finances and by the time our volunteer organisers can contribute.
We wish you luck with your endeavours.
Chairman, Craft and Competitions Committee
